im very fortuanate to be typeing this as 2 am last thursday i quit breathing after taking an aleve arthritus pill . i went into a reaction of like itching hivesthen my throat restricted shut and i couldnt get a breath of air in or out . it was the most horrible feeling i think ive experianced yet . i was able to wake deanna up and tell her through gasping 911 cant breathe aleve pill . i stood there for qa little bit then hit the floor and tried to get up again but it was only on hands and knees . i asked god to save me but i was pretty certain i wasnt being heard i remember sayin to deedee i guess this is it im dieing she said hold on the paramedics are on their way i laid there for a bit more unable to breathe and i passed out i remember vaugley her voice telling me they had arrived just hold on darryl. i was grey and blue lipped and after they tried to apply oxygen to me ,they hand carried me out to ambulance and put the tubes in my throat and nose and hand pumped me alive again and about ten minutes of that they took me to the hospital i finally breathed on my own friday afternoon i came home yesterday afternoon . i got to spend some time with my dad this morning , he was very upset as hes in a nursing home trying to recover from a stroke and was unable to see me . we had a good morning together though and that was good for both of us . i was glad to be able to see my sons when i came around in icu in the frantic minutes that flew by in my attack there wasnt even the slighttest time to wake them up to say goodbye i love you or anything else and i wouldnt have wanted them to see me in that shape . they did get woke up and came up to the hospital after i got there by ambulance and was intibated in emergancy room too late to make a long story short but just remember how very short of time we have here to be someone special in others lives . take nothing for granted and let those you love truely know you love them. god bless all of you , he blessed me .
